This was an excellent T.V.series and an even better full "Tin" series it is so watchable. It tells a really true and heroic story of some of the bravest men to fight in the war. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone, the young today should be so proud of their grandparents, etc... and appreciate what they did and how they had to live and survive and in lots of cases give their lives for the freedom we now enjoy.
I love Band of Brothers so I had to buy the DVDs, great all round entertainment.
This is an absolutely stunning TV series. Delivered brilliantly, it's very difficult to know where to start. The visuals are awesome, the writing is outstanding, acting is superb and the entire series is gripping. Hanks and Spielberg truly out do themselves, making every single episode appear like a high budget film, sucking you in and making you endure every single ricochet bullet and exploding artillery shell.
Excellent box set at an excellent price. Gripping war drama, guaranteed to have you on the edge of your seat. well worth purchasing.
Excellent series very well produced & directed highly recommend
This ten-part mini-series follows Easy Company of the 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment who are assigned to the 101st Airborne Division of the United States Army.The show centers on the experiences of the men from the training camp at Camp Toccoa, Georgia, through the landings in Normandy, Operation Market Garden, the Battle of the Bulge and even to the seizing of Hitler's Eagle's Nest. The show focuses upon showing the true pain of war and the price that was paid in defeating the Nazis. Characterization is a key element of the mini-series, be it the portrayal of Captain Sobel as a ruthless authoritarian who liked nothing better than to make his men suffer, or the portrayal of Major Richard Winters as a calm, collected tactician in combat. The show has exaggerated some of the exploits of Easy Company but the story is all based on what they achieved during the push through Europe, made in a way reminiscent of "Saving Private Ryan" so as to emphasize the horror of war. Fatal gunshot wounds and loss of limbs are common. But, the series is so much more than just gore for the sake of gore. The show portrays the reactions of fellow comrades and conveys the pain and torment they go through emotionally when they lose a friend. The show is based on real events and therefore all the deaths seen in the series did take place. It really forces the viewer to be thankful for what the servicemen did. The show will also focus on a different character for different episodes. In the episode that showed the Battle of the Bulge the medic was the main character. This episode showed how medics begged for scraps and how they had to bear witness to horrific injuries that they quite often tried in vain to heal. The most realistic part for me is when on patrol they come across a concentration camp abandoned by the Nazis with Jews and other ethnic minorities left inside so they can starve to death. The scene is one of death and despondency that shows starving prisoners huddled beside dead bodies. They are let out and are so thankful when food and water arrives. But, on the advice of the chief surgeon they must be kept inside the camp with a monitored intake of food and then Technician Joseph Liebgott who the viewer learns is Jewish, is forced because he speaks German, to order the recently freed Jews back into the camp that they had just been released from. He breaks down in tears after this and this moment is one of poignancy. Overall the series is marvelous. It portrays perfectly the horrors of war but also the camaraderie of the Easy Company. Never does the story drag on, the viewer will become so attached to each character that they will be desperate to learn their fate. At such a price you would be crazy not to buy such a great, realistic, authentic but all the while humorous portrayal of a very special companies surge through Europe. One other thing I love about each episode is that before the episode begins, veterans from Easy Company talk and discuss what happened here and there. It is clear that the war had a profound effect on these men and even as a Brit, I can't help but feel I owe something to these men for the valuable service they have provided. As for the box set itself, it is packaged as described, in a beautiful tin box that adds a touch of class to any DVD set. However, the box is quite small and therefore when removing the DVD case, the corners will usually scrape off the edge of the box. Over time the corners will be worn down and lose color but this is a tiny inconvenience at most. The DVD case is a fold out case, and there are two episodes on each disc and at the end there is a special feature disc. This disc includes a brilliant documentary about the men of Easy Company which is almost as good as the miniseries itself. This box set really is one of a kind. People have compared it to The Pacific but Band of Brothers is in a different league. It really makes for a great watch, enthralling at times whilst heart-breaking at other times. After watching this I can only salute the men who made this possible, thank you men of Easy Company.
The most powerful program i have ever watched, its enticing from beginning to end and you will build a emotional bond with all of the characters.
